A Gritty Lo-Fi Action/Adventure Web Series

ManHeat is an independently produced action/adventure web series made with minimal resources, obsolete equipment and freeware. Its dry, offbeat and irreverent style of humor can be likened to Napoleon Dynamite with a security clearance and a service weapon.

Season 1

These were simple 3-10s clips of standard action movie stock phrases and cliches, mostly shot on iPhone SE in selfie mode (480p).

Season 2

Shot during the Covid Pandemic, clips grew to 30-60s scenes, building the main hero character and his world. Started using a tri-pod for steady shots and the online freeware ClipChamp for editing.

Season 3

Upgraded to 720p exporting and developed a basic storyline that incorporated Season 2 episodes.

Season 4

Upgraded camera to a donated Canon Vixia HF R500. Inched the storyline along while experimenting with reels (9:16 format) for audience building.

Season 5

Upgraded editing suite to the more robust Adobe Premiere Pro, driving the series' storyline deep into its third act.
